SOURCE: the car died lights went

sounds like you either have a loose wire that is preventing the alternator from charging the battery and keeping you going or the alternator has a bad diode. Take it to an auto parts store and have them test both battery and alt while the car is running.

My 1995 kia Sophia speedometer is not working


Older cars run their speedometers from cables. I think in your case it's measured electronically. Check the module on the gearbox. This is where it gets its signal from. There is a gear on it. The gear measures the speed mechanically. Then convert it to an electric pulse. Paired to your speedometer.

Kia sophia overdrive doesn't work


The transmission in this car is electronically controlled, so if it isn't shifting properly the very first thing that must be done is to have the TCM (transmission control module) scanned for fault codes, in your case it is likely the a sensor that is called the VSS is defective. Have the test run. Aamco transmission repair will do the test for free and the preliminary diagnosis for free as well.

2000kia sophia clutch slips


If it's slipping it's near the end of its life and you'll have to change it. Make sure to inspect the rear main seal - most of the time a clutch slips because of wear but a rear main seal leak will allow oil to leak onto the disc and it'll slip. In either case you'll need a new clutch but if the seal is leaking it'll ruin the new one too.
